This is our first installment of our Lighting 101 series, where Lauren walks us through an important concept in film lighting: the quality of your light-- i.e. how hard or soft your light is.

In this video we cover the differences between hard and soft light, how the size and distance of your source affect the quality of your light, how to create hard and soft light using those concepts, and what diffusion actually does! Not only that, we'll tell you how to apply these concepts to your own lighting at home.

Have more questions? Ask Lauren directly in our forums!
